Save water...by filtering it
I have written before about water harvesting. Rain falls on your roof, you tie your downspout to a barrel, you "harvest" the water by capturing it in the barrel and then you reap the benefits of your harvest by using it to water your garden.
But what if you could harvest water all year long! Installing a greywater system allows you to do just that. Most parts of the country allow at least one greywater system (utilizing one greywater connection such as a laundry or shower) to be installed without permit. The Aqua2use by the waterwise group makes it easy. The savings are huge and the impact on the environment is significant. Not only are you saving water by using greywater to water your plants instead of tap water but by doing so you also recharge the groundwater system. Recharging the groundwater system is one of the best environmentally friendly things we can do. It not only helps the plants of your surrounding community but also the streams, fish, birds and animal life!
